PAHO. Practical Guide for in vivo Antimalarial Drug-Efficacy Studies in the Americas. 2003Resistance of Plasmodium falciparum to antimalarial drugs is one of the most serious challenges facing national malaria control programs in the Americas. At present, P. falciparum is resistant to both chloroquine (CQ) and sulfadoxine-pyrimethamine (SP) throughout the Amazon Basin and to CQ alone on the Pacific Coast of South America.

PAHO. Guide for the Reorientation of Malaria Control Programs with a view Toward Elimination of the DiseaseIn recent years the number of malaria cases has fallen substantially in several of the 21 endemic countries in the Americas. According to information reported to the Pan American Health Organization by its Member States in 2009, during the period in question there were no cases of Plasmodium falciparum at all in some countries and only low numbers of focalized cases in others. P. vivax also declined considerably in a number of countries...
